Entertaining All Ages

The company party is coming up and you told your employees to invite their entire family, promising it would be an event with entertainment for all ages. But how do you plan to do that? Learn how you can plan an event that makes everyone happy.  

For The Kids
When children are bored, they make it very clear to everyone around them. A little tantrum can leave a lasting impression on all attendees, not to mention bring down the mood. Many people aren’t able to hire a babysitter on a whim, so offering child-friendly games and activities is a guaranteed way to keep everyone happy. Consider these fun ideas:

  • Large inflatable courses will keep children occupied for hours to come.
  • Face painting booths are sure to be a hit. The opportunity to transform into a fairy, a pirate, or their favorite animal is something no child will want to pass up.
  • Put on a magic show at multiple times throughout the event. Make sure to post the showtimes somewhere where parents can see!
  • Consider a booth for arts and crafts where parents can have a bit of respite and relaxation.

Not a Kid Anymore?
Not everyone at the party is going to enjoy getting a little sweaty over athletic activities. Make sure that there is a good balance between high- and low-energy events going on at once. A variety of options to choose from will surely keep even the pickiest guests happy! Here are some things to think about:

  • Try running drink booths where wines, beers, and liquors can be taste tested. Who doesn’t love a bit of an afternoon treat?
  • Set up some stall games which involve guessing the number of marbles in a jar, or lottery tickets to win baskets of goodies.
  • Have a few casino games set up, like poker or roulette. Set up a chip system with great prizes to be won!
  • Set up trivia games in seated areas with plenty of air conditioning. Play around with topics to do with classical movies or classic musical hits.

You’ll never have to make your attendees have to choose between your awesome event and family obligations. The Florida corporate events team at Fun Planners wants to include everyone and leave nobody feeling bored. Contact or call today at 407-995-4949 to get expert help in putting together a ball of a time!

The Best Company Party in Town

You’re the funny guy at the office. Life’s sometimes mundane, but you always know the right joke to crack. When Anne at the front desk shrank her favorite sweater in the laundry, you told her not to sweat it. Hilarious. Since you’re everyone’s go-to for fun, you opted to host the company picnic party… again. For years now, you’ve one-upped the t-shirt company across the road with your promise of only the best of times. You can’t wait to see the look on T-shirt Todd’s face when you head to the office with a big stack of board games cradled in your arms; one of them isn’t even a board game, it’s Twister.

The fateful day arrives and you’re ready. You close the car door, securing a display of saran-wrapped egg salad, two party packs of chips, and 15 assorted board games. After a quick stop at a balloon shop, you cram a giant bouquet into the back. The corner of the Twister box suddenly pops three balloons, and you groan, knowing the drive will surely pop two more. But if everyone pulls through, there will still be a feast and entertainment for an explosive three hours.

As you pull up to the office, you notice the T-shirt shop is closed; they must be too embarrassed to show their faces on party day. You’re glad T-shirt Todd isn’t around to see the spilled egg salad in the back of your car. The top layer is the only dirtied part, so you scoop it out and re-wrap the container. What people don’t know won’t hurt them.

You drop all your epic party contributions on the meeting table. Sally from two cubicles over brought a container of Publix cookies and a bowl of homemade salsa, but the rest looks suspiciously like what comes out of the vending machine downstairs. Sally’s the only one attending the party with you, bless her. After asking where everyone is, she nervously says that they’re at T-shirt Todd’s party.

Outraged, you storm across the street and knock furiously on the T-shirt shop door. You hear music playing around the back and can’t resist taking a quick peek — and you’re horrified. Standing before you is a towering inflatable, and your coworkers are jumping around with unprecedented energy. People are stuffing their faces at an impressive buffet, and Anne from the front desk is waiting for the entertainer to make her a new balloon sweater.

Your mouth is agape; your hands are still sticky with egg salad. T-shirt Todd pats you on the shoulder, attempting to look apologetic but not quite pulling it off — he’s understandably smug in his victory. You marvel at the luxurious chocolate fountain, laugh with your boss as he falls into the dunk tank, and cheer on your coworkers as they duke it out in the inflatable boxing ring. You sigh and accept your defeat; this was a hard party to beat.

Are you tired of being one-upped by another company’s parties? Put your trust in the Orlando event management experts at Fun Planners! You and your coworkers deserve it.

How Storytelling Can Help Your Event Planning

The key to every great event is a great story. Every event manager wants their guests to feel welcome, to have a great time, and to never forget any aspect of the night. What’s one way to do that, you ask? Creating a great story to go along with your event.

Themes
We’ve all heard how important themes can be for an event. It sets the tone and the mood for the night ahead. Whether it’s a corporate event, birthday party, or anniversary, themes are detrimental to the success of your event. Is a holiday coming up, is there a trend sweeping the nation? These are all questions you should be asking yourself and your Orlando event management team.

Make it Relatable

One of the worst things you could do when planning an event is not listening to your audience. Your audience, at the end of the day, are the ones that will be snapping, sharing, and tweeting their experience. You want to make sure that everyone at the party knows the theme, feels accepted, and is there to have a great time. You can do this by sending out invites ahead of time, laying out the theme to employees and/ or volunteers and to make sure you stand out just as much as the guests!

Have the Right Equipment

With the right equipment, any event can make a splash. Whether it’s inflatables, pool tables, bouncy houses, or more, Fun Planners can help you take your event to the next level. Every event need games, activities, and entertainment to keep the audience paying attention. Opt for the more unique and interesting games, activities, and more that you can find in our catalog.

How Volunteering Can Help You Start Event Planning

For any Orlando event management team, volunteering is the easiest and smartest way to help out in the community. As an added bonus, volunteering can catapult your company through brand awareness, acquired skill, and improved decision-making skills.

We all know how much expertise means in an industry like event planning, if you don’t have experience, skills, and the ability to multitask in a fast-paced environment, clients are not afraid to look the other way. Volunteering in your community can be the freeway for networking, for growing relationships, and retaining work ethic. Most clients look for event planners with great reviews and an outstanding reputation. When you put all of these together, you have an event planning powerhouse.

If an organization hears about how great their last event was, they often ask “who planned it?” Chances are, they have an event coming up that needs to wow their boss. Word of mouth is a key marketing asset that can help your team get recognized, contacted, and eventually hired. Volunteering is not only about growing your own business, however. Every organization has a tie to their local community and a great way to team build, even for an event planning company, can be done through local volunteer opportunities.

We realize this isn’t always the easiest thing to do. With busy schedules, existing clients, and future events, sometimes it’s difficult to find time to give back or volunteer. It’s important to keep in mind, however, that it doesn’t have to be a huge volunteer event. Any opportunity counts and is a chance to get in front of the clients you’re looking for and to build your portfolio.

Whether you’re an organization looking for unique activities to help with team-building or an Orlando event management team needing to host an interactive, fun, and different event, we are here to help you. As your one-stop shop for every game, carnival ride, and activity out there, we can help bring new life to your volunteer or corporate event.

Create the Perfect Carnival Themed Party with These Booths

No matter how extravagant some events may be, there’s no beating a classic carnival themed party. From classic carnival booths to fun new carnival games, your guests are sure to have a blast. So what are some go-to booths and games when looking to host a carnival-themed party? Let the Florida team building professionals at Fun Planners share some booth and game ideas that will have your guests ecstatic.

Carnival games: There’s an abundance of games available to pick for your carnival party, but a good question would be “which ones?” Try having a mixture of games that are kid-friendly and adult-orientated. Here are a few examples.

  • Pluck-a-Duck: Focused primarily on children, kids will use a small fishing rod to catch the “winning duck” from a small pond that they circle.  
  • Ring-Toss: For adults or children, Ring-Toss is a classic game of hand-eye coordination. The goal is to throw your ring to land perfectly onto one of the many bottles.
  • Hoop Shot: For adults, you may think of having Hoop Shot, an exciting two-player basketball game. The goal is to see which player make three shots in their basket first.

Carnival Booths: Every carnival party deserves its share of carnival booths! Here’s a few to take into consideration.

  • Midway carnival booth: If you’re going for a more classical approach to your carnival party, these are the booths for you. Sporting the classic red and white stripes, it’s sure to give your guests the feeling of nostalgia.
  • Tropical carnival booth: Seeing as how we are in Florida, it’s only right to host your carnival event with tropical themed booths. This set can include decorative fish netting, lobster traps, and other assorted tropical props.
  • Wood fencing booth: Have a thing for old western movies? Then this is the perfect booth for your carnival party! With real, wood-plank fencing and trimmed in themed props, this booth is perfect for that old western feel!

These are only a few of the dozens of games and booths available for your picking. If you need assistance in creating your carnival event, contact Fun Planners, Florida team building professionals, at 407-955-4949.
